Dear Resident,

Meeting with the Prime Minister on steel

After my visit to the steelworks last Friday, my good friend and neighbour, Andrew Percy, and I went to Downing Street again this morning to talk again to the PM about steel.

Visit to the Steelworks

As always I was absolutely delighted to have the opportunity to visit the steelworks last week, and I’d like to thank everyone who took time out of their day to show us around the rod mill and caster 5. We had some really interesting discussions.

Asking the government to protect our steel industry in trade remedies

I am working with colleagues, the local steelworks and Ministers to preserve steel safeguards on a number of products produced locally. Consultations are ongoing and I am determined to ensure that the industry is not at a disadvantage to the rest of the world.
